Chapter 8, Page 4, Book 17



Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows.
Author Unknown

clear mind, strong heart, can’t lose

Only thing greater than the power of the mind is the courage of the heart.

Author Unknown.

We’ve all been there. Stuck in the middle of our decision making mode. Our heart tells us one thing, while our mind tries to keep us safe. Two totally different directions. One feels right, while the other is the most logical option.The heart of the matter is not always clear and it takes a clear mind. strong heart. firm faith to decide what really matters.

There are time when you should listen to your heart and then there are times when you should listen to your mind, but I think both should be considered when making a decision. Your heart knows how you really feel and your brain is there to keep you in check.

A good heart is better than all the heads in the world.

 Robert Buller-Lytton

While the mind is the content of who you are, your heart is your essence. Your true heart is not subject to chaos or limited by pain, fear and neuroses, but is joyful, creative and loving. Some believe the heart can be too uncertain and even misguided, but that is the head talking! 

If you think with your head, a heart is just an organ that pumps blood. But if you think with your heart, you know that a heart is the core of human existence. A heart feels, emotes, and expresses. With a heart you can perceive, understand, and judge. 

The human heart feels things the eyes cannot see, and knows what the mind cannot understand.

I know in a recent situation I used both heart and head to deal with it, but I know I favored the heart more which at times made it difficult to deal with. I let emotion play too much into it. Needed to be more level headed.

Yup, you may well be describing me. I love flights of fancy -- I'm an emotional type -- but at the end of the day my logical side kicks in.
I wonder if Mr. God doesn't regard me like one might a wishbone. LOL!

we should use both our heart and mind to make decisions. but sometimes those emotions get the best of us. "While the mind is the content of who you are, your heart is your essence. "

Hey Girl, you said a mouthful here: Our heart tells us one thing, while our mind tries to keep us safe. Two totally different directions. One feels right, while the other is the most logical option........

I know we have all been here, just did not know it as clear as you stated. LOL

Good on you .
